Appeal after purse snatch in Alfreton

Two men snatched a purse from a young woman as she returned to her car in Alfreton.

A 21-year-old woman had just been to the bank to withdraw money at around 6pm on Tuesday, July 2.

When she returned to her car, parked near a dentists on Church Street, she saw a white man in a dark tracksuit and a hat was standing by it.

He began to shout at her and while she was distracted a second man, in jeans and a hooded top, snatched a purse from her hand.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the robbery to call the force’s non-emergency number 101.
